DC Films’ Aquaman wrapped production last year, but the movie is currently in the final stages of reshoots. During these reshoots, it turns out that a new character has been added to the cast.
Director James Wan announced on Twitter that actor Randall Park has joined Aquaman as Dr. Shin. In the comics, Dr. Stephen Shin is a scientist who is very knowledgeable of Atlantis, and he helps young Arthur Curry to develop his powers. He later betrays Arthur while trying to find the location of Atlantis. It’s unknown exactly how much of this will be adapted into the movie.
So happy and fortunate to be finally working with this man, @parkrandall, on pickups. #DrShin pic.twitter.com/q95PFEUSC2

Randall Park is best known for his role on the TV show Fresh Off The Boat, while his movie credits include The Interview and Southpaw. He also appears in this summer’s Ant-Man and The Wasp, so he now gets to be in two big Marvel and DC movies in the same year.
Stay tuned for more as we have it.
Aquaman is scheduled to hit theaters December 21st. The sixth installment in the DC Films Universe stars Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Temuera Morrison, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Ludi Lin, Patrick Wilson, and Nicole Kidman. James Wan directs from a script by Will Beall.
